The weather has been pretty nice lately! It's exactly the temperature that I like.. not too cold or hot. A lot of people are excited for summer which I am too, but I cannot stand how hot it gets! I really love the way it feels right now where it's a bit chilly, but I'm still able to go outside in jeans and a sweater and feel comfortable.
Plus now that it's not as bitter cold as it was in winter, I have finally been able to go running in usually a long sleeve and leggings. I actually stopped running this winter because of how cold and snowy it got (and maybe I was lazy too haha) and I didn't want to get sick. However, once I heard that I had to run the mile in under a certain time, I immediately put my running shoes on and off I went! It felt so nice and though I was huffing a bit at 2 miles, I loved it. Running is such an escape for me because my mind is always racing, but when I run, it actually kinda stops working and I enjoy it haha. =)
Anyways here is my outfit today- I wanted to embrace the slightly warmer weather with this adorable polka dot dress!
My sister has been so sweet lately and agreed to help my photos! It makes things so much easier for me! The photos today were taken outside and we were actually trying to figure out the lighting. It was bright, but the sun wasn't out so were confused on how to set the camera up haha.. we ended up just using the automatic settings! This dress was purchased a while back from forever 21 and I fell back in love with it again after putting it on today! The dress fits me to a "T" and I love the fabric of it. It's quite lightweight and super soft!
The dress is a black color with a pattern of white polka dots on it. The waist is cinched in and the dress actually came with a belt. However, I opted not to wear the belt since I felt that the belt hit me in a weird area. It didn't really land on my waist, but rather on my ribcage which I felt uncomfortable with. The back of the dress has a cute little keyhole and a button.
I think spring is a perfect time to bust out dresses and skirts so I am pretty excited to start being able to wear more of them. I feel that jeans are often so tight and constricting on my legs.. does anyone else feel this? haha
For my shoes, I opted to wear a simple pair of black flats. I also have on two bracelets and a ring with this outfit. The two bracelets are beaded with a huge infinity charm in the center. Both bracelets are the same except for the color: one is white and the other is a soft pink. On my finger, I have on a cute ring I got during Black Friday. I really love this ring and it's one of the rings that I often reach for. It's quite a simple ring, but I love the design of it a lot.

Is it finally warming up a bit where you are?
Who else prefers dresses + skirts over jeans?
Did you guys experience the same emotions when you graduate high school/college as me?
